Jesus answered them,
"The hour has come
for the Son of Man to be glorified.
Very truly, I tell you,
unless a grain of wheat
falls into the earth and dies,
it remains alone;
but if it dies, it bears much fruit."
"Now is the judgment of this world;
now the ruler of this world
will be driven out.
And I, when I am lifted up from the earth,
will draw all things to myself."
John 12:23-24; 31-32
